At bottom, I like to think this blog is about legal realism. That’s why I want everyone who reads this damn thing to go over to Simple Justice and read Scott’s post “Judicial Incentives: Why Judges Won’t Condemn Cops.“
Because I have always believed that I could handle the truth, Greenfield’s post makes yours truly very, very itchy. Maybe Col. Jessep was right, at least about me.
What do you think about the post? Let Scott or me know. And, “no” I have not conspired with Scott on this matter. I leave conspiracies to right-leaning academics and drug dealers.
PS. Scott features Professor Will Baude’s take on lying cops. Guess where brother Baude teaches? Guess who received an undergraduate degree in Mathematics with a Specialization in Economics? The foregoing said, and as Scott makes clear, you don’t have to buy into the “law and economics” stuff to accept Scott’s point.
